A Rick Roll, a Kwote and a Comp

==A Rick Roll==
A great big congratulations to MikeChilds, the Cafe's latest new mod addition. And also our famed and annoying rick roller ;)

Everyone do your best to rick roll this guy and unseat him as master rick roller. :D

==A Kwote==
After mild observation of Talesworth Arena: Death Watch, doctormarmalade found the attacks a little strange.

doctormarmalade: Ven, After playing all those console games with brilliant stories and no odd things ingame, It is a tad bit odd to find myself fighting a drunk man with a flamethrower whilst he attacks me with vomit.

==A Competition==
I will be posting the results of the competition over time, so as to not flood you with too much Fantastic Contraption. The winner of the first division will be announced on the weekend when I have time to look at them all (seriously you guys, you got really into this! :D)

Cafe Kong Competition: Fantastic Contraption

Just for fun, I've decided to open another competition, this time for Fantastic Contraption. I just made this up on the spot, so we'll see how it goes.

This is all to do with the level "The Wall". To enter, all you have to do is somehow give me the link to your contraption. If you win, you get brownie points. And so forth. The challenges are as follows:

1. Completed with the least number of pieces - In the event of a tie, person who submitted their contraption first wins
2. Completed without knocking over any block of the wall (By Vote) - You may not use a catapult to propel the goal object over the wall; c'mon, make it interesting :D
3. Most interesting design. (By Vote) - It must complete the level

To save your contraption, click the save button and give me the link via comments on this blog or via whisper on my profile if you wish for your design to remain secret.
-You may enter each challenge twice.

-Please tell me which challenge your contraption is designed for.

After a week (2nd-9th of October) I will put all contraptions on the blog and you get to vote on your favs for the 2nd and 3rd challenges to determine the winners.

TWO Major things. It's epic

Hello Cafe Kongers! Been a while since there's been a post so Mike is here bringing you not one but TWO major events

Firstly, I've decided that due to the ever-growing number of people with Wii's there will be an inaugral Super Smash Bro's Brawl Cafe Kong tourney! Everyone who has a copy of this game and a Wi-Fi connection can take part, although it will be open exclusively to people in Cafe Kong. The rules will be simple: Best of 3 matches, up to 4 people in a match (depending on numbers) and the top 2 progress in each match. I'll see what I can do but the winner will get an awesome prize. A cookie or something

Can you please post your SSBB code in your comment below so eveyone knows. Thanks

Secondly I believe that the CK community is like a family - hence, it'd be cool to see what we all look like. The comments for this can now be posting your picture to let others know what you look like.

Ay comments or thoughts about the tourney shout me on Kong

Cafe Kong Kongai Tornament

So, I was thinking of what to write for my newest post since my 5 weeks away from Kong. I was in Digg Mark 1 (ironic right?) and chitown15 (its owner) was commenting how this blog has only 27 posts, while the DM1 blog, created a few days ago, has around 10 posts. I felt like I needed to make another post to make it 28 posts. I thought for a moment, told DM1 that I was thinking about stuff to write for the blog, and an idea hit me. Lets make me a Cafe Kong Kongai Tournament!
It will be be 3 card or 5 card, I will let the competiters decide. Single elimination, hopefully able to get 16 or 32 people. Comment below, leave your vote (3 or 5 card), and Kongregate name. Seeds will be placed randomely, and it is up to the two people facing each other to play at a certain point in time, and leave me a shout (physcomonkey) on who won and who lost. Hopefully somebody with some leverge could get an admin to award points for the 1st 2nd and 3rd place. Tournament starts when we get 16 or 32 people sign up, depends on how long it takes 16 people to sign up. Sign up!

The epic pwning of DeFeo222

It was a boring day at the Cafe. Fabricant and MikeChilds were bored. DeFeo2222 had arrived. Thinking that he would be an awesome Mod, he asked a Mod in the room to recommend him. The Mod said "no". Confused, DeFeo2222 began to explain why he would be such a good Mod for the room. Unimpressed, the Mod reminded him that asking to become a Mod will result in a "no".

MikeChilds, witnessing the incidence, thought of an evil plan. "I shall Rick-Roll this poor soul" he thought as he typed away to DeFeo. "Hey" said Mike. "I heard you wanted to become a Mod. I know the secret to become a Mod". Happy with the news, DeFeo replied "yes wat". " - it's a guide by a former mod who lets you know all the secrets" said Mike as he grinned to himself. A few short moments passed. DeFeo had watched the video. "MIKECHILDS" he screamed in anger. MikeChilds laughed. "You have to watch the video. When you do, a button appears. When you click on it, it takes you to the site". Many Rick-Rolls later, DeFeo still did not understand. He tried everything MikeChilds told him to do. Watch the video. Look at more Rick Roll videos and find a "secret button". Watch them again. It was brilliant

Angered by this, DeFeo threatened Mike to tell him the secret. He even made an alt account called IWORK. On this account, he claimed to be a secret Mod and demanded Mike to tell him to the secret. Mike did not want to tell the "secret". He threatened bans, but Mike would not break. The joke has been going on for 15 minutes now. DeFeo was determined to get this "secret" so he challenged Mike to a race in Platform Racing 2. It was an epic battle full of fail. As planned, Mike lost at the end. Mike had to tell DeFeo the "secret". Mike sighed. "The secret is..." whispered Mike. "what" said DeFeo.

"Everybody laugh at DeFeo2222" delcared Mike to the Cafe. Unfortunately, they did not laugh. "A DEAL IS A DEAL ISNT" yelled DeFeo, who was soon told to turn caps off. Fabricant then acted as if he did not know what was going on. DeFeo begged Fabricant to ban MikeChilds. "Why?" asked Fabricant. DeFeo began to explain that MikeChilds knew a site that turned people into Mods. He provided the link. "This is very serious..." said Fabricant. The room went silent. "SERIOUS BUSINESS! The Internet is not a truck! It's a series of tubes!" yelled Fabricant. DeFeo was confused. "ban mikechilds" he said. Some members of the Cafe were laughing at poor DeFeo's guillibility. Others were confused. MikeChilds began to tell the story. Every Cafe Kong members began to laugh with the exception of a few who think Rick Rolling is stupid. DeFeo left the room. The humiliation was too much to handle.

Around 8 hours after the joke, DeFeo came into Feed The Ducks. He called the Mods and told them to ban MikeChilds. When asked why, he told them about the apparent site that turns people into Mods. People laughed, but it was serious business still. If you see DeFeo still talking about this site that turns people into Mods, please take a screenshot and post it in the comments.

This has been a long story created by Fabricant. Thank you for reading and no thank you if you TL;DR'd it.

Cafe Kong Comp Alpha Results!

Well, the results are in!
A huge thanks to everyone who voted and an even bigger thanks to those who submitted images; it was extremely close. In the end, a tie was needed to be broken and the winner is:

War_Wrecker with his "Win"ning picture:

And runner-up TheCrom for Hammertime!

Congratulations to both of you; you now have some bragging rights!
I've got an idea towards a prize, but it may take a while to come into effect. For now, War gets 2 points and Crom gets 1 point towards the prizes (whatever they end up being)

Cafe Kong Kwotes.

Today, a particularly lengthy conversation granted to us by Jonno_Gradian after a certain user tried to blame all his trollish-ness on his little brother. For confidentiality, his name has been removed from the text and replaced with 'Dude'. Heh. Enjoy.

Dude: Please that is my brother!!! T_T hiks
Venzael: Enough of the brother story...
Dude: Not me!!!! if you cant trust me, lets go to the cort
MikeChilds: Judge Ven will preside
MikeChilds: all rise

Jonno_Gradian: It's a beatiful day for trials today, don't you think so Mike?
MikeChilds: I do indeed
MikeChilds: I know what the audience are expecting today: a public ban sticker
Jonno_Gradian: oh yes, Speaking of the public
Dude: dadadadadadadadadadadada
Jonno_Gradian: Tonight we have the public versus Dude
Dude: hey!!!!!!
MikeChilds: a strong first arguement from Dude there
Venzael: I found his lack of persuasive language, disappointing, Mike.
Jonno_Gradian: as you can see, the public destroy in numbers, but Dude has his little brother
Dude: N
Venzael: Of course, the opening statement is the strongest.
Jonno_Gradian: it's gonna be a close one, lets watch...
MikeChilds: how can you argue with "dadadadadadadadadadadada"?
Venzael: Well, his underuse of the other 24 letters let him down, I felt, Mike.
Hiccups125: I, the jury find the defendant...
Jonno_Gradian: And here come's the verdict...
MikeChilds: *drumroll*
MikeChilds: dun dun duuuun
Hiccups125: Guilty!
MikeChilds: and an unsurprising result, he has been found guilty
MikeChilds: your thoughts Jonno?
Jonno_Gradian: It was an ambush from the start Mike
Jonno_Gradian: almost as obvious as a Troll's vocabulary
MikeChilds: but what a great ambush to watch
Dude: Please Give your cash!
MikeChilds: this has been CK Court and I've been Mike
Dude: This is a robery
Jonno_Gradian: And I've been Jonno
Jonno_Gradian: Goodnight!
MikeChilds: Good night

Kongrats to the latest Cafe mods

Hai people, Mike here :)

Just offering congratulations to the two newest mods to come from the Cafe, TheCrom and Sakuya. TheCrom has been a great member of the Cafe for a while, representing England and fully deserving of the big M. Sakuya is a fiesty American who'll be sure to kick the trolls where the sun don't shine.

Congratulations to both of them on receiving the mod-ship, they'll both do a fine job

Cafe Kong Competition - Alpha edition

Yes, I neglected to use alliteration due to the whole kkk thing. Anyway, so here's time for a little experiment. How about a little competition between us Cafe Kongers?

The first challenge is to create the most humorous image from the game: Arcane. You may use anything within the game you want, however the rules are as follows:
-You must use a screen capture from Arcane, by Hadar1989
-You may not edit the image so it is recognizably Arcane, but you may crop and add things, like, say, donuts or captions and so forth.

Your prize is yet to be announced. And by that, I mean it hasn't been decided. But your name will go down in the Cafe Kong Hall of Fame!

To enter, please upload your picture to Imageshack or Photobucket or some other filehosting site and send me a whisper on my Kongregate profile with the address
This change is prevent people from getting ideas from others' work :P

Entries close 30th of June
Have fun!

Cafe Kong Kwotes

Okay, so it's been ages since an update and I have nothing to babble about. Hope you've all been well. So, here's a few random quotes on the topic of absolutely nothing. One of them was commented in the first Kwote, thanks, Doc :)

MikeChilds:I am not even sure that I have picturs of me for the photo topic...
Doctormarmalade: Put your face on a scanner. Might just work.
MikeChilds: MY EYES!
Doctormarmalade: or give you cancer. Lots of cancer.
loki420: Yum.

MikeChilds: A Hard badge that's Hard? Incredible.

Cafe Kong Kwotes 1

Okay, here's a brand new segment for no particular reason, the Café Kwotes! Here we will post some funny quotes said by our dedicated Caféers in parody to popular games on Kongregate. I'm sure many of you may be able to empathise with these quotes.

Our first quote (or kwote) is by Jonno_Gradian, on the subject of Papa's Pizzeria:
Jonno_Gradian: Hello my good sir, now I'd like a pizza
Jonno_Gradian: with two slices of pepperoni in
Jonno_Gradian: thhhhhhhhhat corner there
Jonno_Gradian: also, i'd like it cooked for 30 seconds

Hope you smiled, tell me if this segment is worth continuing, too.

Shall we call them waiters?

Weeeellll, it looks like we have two more mods in the lovely Café! Maybe more, but only two I've seen so far.

Anyway, a hearty congratulations to McCoyEVP and to Denvish for getting that elusive M badge that they deserve.

We certainly have a nice mod population now! Enjoy yourself, Caféers!

Hello, diners.

Well, I'm not quite sure what to say. I'll start by thanking Val for her kind words and trust, albeit far too late. Thank you, Val. I'll do my best. And to those of you who miss Val, don't worry; I'll make sure she keeps her promise and visits us often. ;)

Anyway, I know quite a few of you Café-ers and I hope to meet you all in the not-too-distant future. Together we can make the greatest room Kongregate has ever known, and we've already started!

Although several of our resident mods have left, due to being granted their own room (GenX and Butterfly623; make sure to visit them, too, in Difference Engine and The Garden), we're lucky enough to have another new mod, fresh off the printing press. So make sure you all congratulate Kyru (he may be quiet, but if you bombard him with hugs I'm sure he'll respond).
But The Café won't need too much moderation; after all, we are brilliant.

So, any ideas for the blog, please comment and hopefully I'll be meeting you all soon ^^

Fresh new Cafe Kong!

As you would all have noticed, the Cafe is in the hands of a new owner; Venzael. Please give him a rousing Cafe style welcome. Venzael brings to the Cafe a fresh new perspective and younger and more vibrant ambiance. It is a sign of great times ahead. I am sure that the Café will continue to grow and will be the defining room of Kongregate’s ethos.

So lets all have a party. A party where we celebrate the new and improved Café.

Before you ask.. No .. I did not abandon Cafe Kong.
One of the reasons I was made a mod was my involvement in rooms that were not very popular or populated, and engage the users there, encouraging them to interact. It has been an ongoing process.

But the more relevant reason for the ownership change is that I believe in the current team at the Cafe. Butterfly623, Nadroj09, Stefan88, PTGmach, Thalarion, Genx (to name a few) and the resident quasi mod.. Doctormarmalade, are capable of maintaining the pleasant ambience of the Cafe. So I feel that I am leaving my baby in safe hands. It is a teary situation.. but I cannot ask for a more dependable team to take care of what I hold so dear to me. If in real life I am asked to put together a team on which my life would depend, without hesitation these would be the names that come to my mind. I have a very close and personal relationship with every one of you. Some of you have defined and reshaped my real life in ways that you cannot even begin to comprehend. Specially Butterfly623. If it was not for her support I might have been committed to the institution of the insane or might have received my last blessings.

Venzael is going to make this room proud. With your support, the room is going to be the biggest room in all of Kongregate. Just watch.

On particular e-mail screamed at me.. "Why Venzael? What about Seniority? What are the other mods; Chopped Liver?"
Well, it helps to remember that the room owners are still a lot lower than the Admins who decide a majority of things like who should own a room. And there are no “Senior” mods. I was asked my opinion and I offered several suggestions, but it finally boiled down to Venzael who I feel is the same caliber of the Café regulars and fits the same “gentle and calm” mod ambience that we expect at the café. There have been some names that I have rejected, even to the point of stating that I would hand in my moderator privileges if they were made the room owners. There was a lot of discussion behind the scenes. This has been a month long process.

So yes.. essentially Venzael was my choice, but it was a choice that does not belittle any of the current moderators of Café Kong, rather seeks to complement them.

As I said before all of the mods in the Cafe are as close to me as I can ever hope in real life so I do not play favorites nor let my personal relationships with other influence my decision.

So now what?
Well I will be in the café as often as I can, while I try my best to make Valhala, The Hall of Odin a worthy competitor to Café Kong. The plans for the website are still active. I will be working very closely with all of Café Kong and The Gibson on several things that we have been discussing. I will try and get The Hall to participate and interact with the café in several things such as contests and such.

Now, I also try to stabilize my life a little bit, earn a living and get back some of my lost dignity.

Moderators Appreciation Week.

Lately I have received a lot of mail asking me what makes Cafe Kong Special. My response has always been that it is the people who make it special. My belief is "It takes good people to bring out the goodness in you". So Cafe Kong if the best place on Kongregate because it has the best people.

I would like to add to that statement. If Cafe Kong is so special, equal appreciation has to go to the Moderators as well. This is one place that mods do not come down harsh and there has been no random acts of vengeance. The moderators here are known for their patience, understanding, tolerance and a whole lot more. (Well meisme's nomination has drawn some flak. But do give her a chance). Some of the mods in the Cafe let people get away with things which would have earned them permanent bans from some of the mods from other rooms. I am so glad that we are not running things like Bouncers or Gestapo. This is a fun place. A happy place where you can have a civil conversation with your friends. And the mods let you relax and unwind.

I have had the pleasure of seeing(for a fleeting few moments) one of the best analyst and strategist in the field of Internet, web and web communities, during an interview; Jeremiah Owyang. His thoughts have mirrored mine.

He Says "First of all, many have a hard time being successful with their community if they want to control it too tight. The most successful companies let go of the control and acted more like a host, rather than a policeman."(Edited for clarity)

And that got me thinking; "That is what we do at the cafe... we do not police.. we host". And that is what makes us different. So this week, I would like to make it Mod Appreciation Week, while we show our appreciation of Moderators at Cafe Kong.

That brings me to a different point. Some have e-mailed me saying that they are disappointed that they have not been considered as Moderator Candidates, and some have even said that I am playing favourites. I am really sorry to hear that. There has been no favouritism or discredit to any of the deserving candidates. Two of the existing moderators can confirm that before I nominated them, I have had very personal and bitter conflicts with them. That did not stop me from giving credit where it is due, and recommending them for the Moderator's role.

Several names HAD been recommended. Of them several had been vetoed (for various reasons). And some have been set aside for the next round of appointments. It is not within my power to appoint moderators. Don't lose heart. If you are deserving, you will get it. The new system of moderating is described here by Greg.

New Mods

Well, today, Genx and Thalarion, among others became a mod today. This brings a LOT of mods that frequent the cafe. Valkyrie, Nadroj09, DingoEatingFuzz, PTGMach, Stefan88, Takumashii, WilliamWilson. Once we had eight mods in the Cafe.
*goes off in a trance*
Anyway, congrats to them(Thalarion and Genx) on becoming a mod.

Make a mental note

Hello beloved members of the Cafe.

I am so happy that I am literally crying now. I owe a debt of gratitude to several people. Some call me insane. I might be. But I babble.

The reason for my happiness; for a while now the cafekong mini city was almost in ruins. It has been brought back from the brink of a disaster. And I really owe a lot to several people. McCoyEVP, Nadroj09, Kikkerman, Stefan88, MeMe44 are among a few to name.

We shall remain strong. And the coffee will always overflow in

Sob stuff aside, I have been toying around with the idea of the cafekong website. What is it that you would like to see most in the cafekong website? Any suggestions on the design and concept that we can follow? I am open to ideas and suggestions. A list of features that you want there, how you want it. If there are any considrations for joomla or drupal or something like that, let me know.

I have been considering the option of purchasing something called Dolphin. Any ideas on that? It costs about a hundred dollars, but that does away with the need to program a lot of stuff. I have also been considering the option of a Wiki. That could be some potent stuff. So.. think this over. Since this is going to be your site, I need your input. Do leave your comments or if you prefer send an e-mail to

Peace to the cafe.

Cafe Kong Pinball

Cooldragon talking here, so pay attetion unless you want to be deep fried.

Fine, no deep frying... I can only deep fry PMK...

Aw, I am actually out of ideas so PLEASE POST IDEAS

Anyways, as some of you may know, I currently making a Cafe Kong themed pinball game. This pinball, when finished, will feature some real people (with permission of course) who will be immortalized by being put into the actual game, as well as a "Who Is It" page.If you think that you may be able to help me out somehow, please email me at I will post sneak peaks (and a last updated so you know if there's a new one) here, so make sure that you constantly check the blog. Also, I know that the game is still very buggy, so don't bug me about how buggy it is. I am working on those! Feel free to post any ideas that you may have

Quick note - the blue men shown at the top are only temporary. When I finish they will be remakes of real people. Also, the game WILL feature lives and a plunger, only I haven't added them yet, so I just have the ball teleport if you die.

Peace out,
Your fellow ice breathing dragon

Trailers shown below!

Last Updated on: 3/25 @ 9:26 EST
Sneak Peak found at:
Some known bugs

- Ball sometimes teleports through walls
- Sometimes things don't respond
- Sometimes ball bounces forever or bounces back up


Well, in a show of sportsmanship, cooldragon23 has been creating an interesting game for us. And he keeps making constant updates. So he is now the newest contributing member of the Blog!

ch33rs to him!

Welcome cooldragon23!! We expect great things from you.

New writer

Good news for the Cafe' blog. We have a new writer im town. His name is physcomonkeykid. So there may be a change in the writing style of a few of the posts. Do not worry, as all of my (physcomonkeykid)'s posts will have PMK at the end, and if valkyrie complies, all of her posts will have val at the end.

We may be having a new website soon, complete with updates, comments, a photo gallery of our members (if that doest seem too creepy) and possibly a forum.

Well, i have to go to school, so have a great Kongreffic day (does that seem too cheesy?) and remeber:

The Cafe and You!

Hello All.

I had been out of action for a while, and due to several reasons I have not been able to spend a lot of time on Kongregate. A lot has happened in the mean while.

There have been several people who have approached me to nominate them for a moderator's status. And a few have asked me about being a room owner. (That does not disqualify them in my books)

Well, one of the new changes being contemplated in Kongregate is the way the site is to be moderated. The Site owners and the community manager have been contemplating to Democratize Kongregate a lot further by implementing new moderating methods. While these are still being contemplated, the implications are that no new mods will be appointed for a while. And the position of the room owner might be abolished (Who among us needs to be lorded over any way eh?).

The proposed changes will mean that several of you will be able to achieve your desires. Maybe not become a room owner, but something better perhaps.

Tuesday, March 4, 2008


Good things have been happening at Cafe Kong. We have good reason to Cheer. The Individual with the Highest Level and points on Kongregate is none other than the Cafe's own Nadroj09. This week we are having a special Colonial style Dinner as a toast to Nad and his w00tsome levels.

Kongrats Nad! You rock!!

In other news, the list of regulars have grown. So our ranks have increased. It will be hard to list individuals here. But you {yeah.. you know who I am talking about} Welcome to Cafe Kong.

I am shocked to see that the initial affinity to the Cafekong Minicity has tapered off and the city is now desolate. I entice you all to visit Every bit helps people.

Happy Valentine's day!

Happy St. Valentine's Day to all of you.

Take a moment to think of that special someone and plan to make them understand that (s)he is special for all times. Let bygones be bygones and look to the future with renewed commitment and find each other afresh. The enchantment of your early days together, the magic of looking at each other through the years, may it all make your life from this moment on a magical journey of love and understanding.

The Valentine's Ball is being held today. Bring your partner to the Cafe and get 99% discount on your bill. If you can send us a picture of the two of you at the cafe, you get and additional 1% discount.

Since it is Valentine's day, and in the true spirit of the cafe, I would like to welcome Danimalop to Cafe Kong. For those of you who are wondering why this special welcome, well.. add him as a friend and ask him why in a shout. He is a honourable guy.

I am homepounded this valentines day. :( But I getto spend all of it at the Cafe so \0/

I was thinking of adding a new section called person of the week. You can vote who your favourite Cafe patron is, for that week. I gave up on that because everyone of you are unique and special to me.

Well I am not really a good blogger. So anyone interested in helping out?? I did do one cool thing though. I added a social bookmarking button. It was a great achievement for me.

There are some interesting changes coming to The Cafe. Keep watching this space.

If you are alone this Valentine's day.. then you are not at the cafe.

How Now?

Hello All.

There was a time when The Good People or Barrens contested the Players of Jugon in an inter room contest. It was hard work but fun.

To give a brief description, there were three rounds. An elimination round, a Selection round and a trophy round.

Would anyone be interested in such a contest now? Probably against The Attic or League of Gamers.

I am open to ideas and suggestions. Suggest games, names, offer help or what ever. This could perhaps be an excuse to start using this blog a bit better.

Cheers All.

Monday, January 7, 2008

Lets get the party started.

Hello All.

The Cafe Kong chat room has grown well and continues to grow day by day. And the cafe-kong mincity has become an Icon of team work. I appreciate all of you who involve themselves in Cafe Kong. Thank you all.

I would like some suggestions on fostering a good community and developing a sense of belonging at the cafe kong chat room in Kongregate. Please do come up with some ideas.

As always all the food and beverages are on the House at the cafe.

Cheers everyone.

The Cafe-kong Minicity Link.

Greetings Cafe regulars.

The Cafe-kong minicity has grown very quickly. I sincerely wish to thank each and every one of you. It does mean a lot to me.

Here is an interesting link pointed out by Spindax and Stefan for the Cafe-kong Minicity. It is supposed to figure out the best upgrade (Ind/Sec/Tra/ etc) and redirect you accordingly.

It is looks like it is Working.

I am awestruck that people have such an affinity for the Cafe. Any suggestions for improvement of Cafe is welcome.

I must Express my appreciation to Siufb2 who has designed what could well be the Logo of Cafe Kong.

I ought to mention each and every one of you by name and extent my appreciation, but that would sound phony here. So I have left each one of you a personal shout for the new year in your Kong profile. Trust me, I meant those Shouts.

You (Insert YOUR name here) have reinforced my personal belief that Teamwork wins. Without (Insert YOUR name here) your personal involvement and affinity, Cafe Kong would not have grown as well as it has now.

I have a spreadsheet with me which lists 84 Regular patrons of Cafe Kong, and just over 176 others who visit on a regular basis. It is a phenomenal display of your attachment. I am proud to be one among this awesome group of Gamers.

Happy New Year

Hope that 2008 turns out to be a spectacular year for you all.
Sorry I missed the new year post. I was busy partying.
